Top Dye Blues For Florida

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Custom, Menswear

Perfect for Florida!

Top Dye Blue

What makes Dormeuil’s top dye cloth so special when compared to regular piece dye or yarn dye cloth?

There are three types of dying processes:

1. Piece dye – where pre-woven fabric is dyed

2. Yarn dye – where spun yarn is dyed a single color

3. Top dye – where the worsted wool fiber is dyed and then color blended into top dye yarn

Top dye yarn creates complex color that reads like an oil painting. Many colors are working together to create a hue with depth and character.

Top dye yarn is dyed to the very core of the fiber, so that the color will last (and stay vivid) for the life of the garment. This color does not fade with time.

For blazers and suits, a top dye blue is a statement in sophistication, taste, and elegance.

When you see and feel the quality, you can appreciate what goes into to creating this level of luxury.

 

Enjoy the Spring in exclusive luxury top dye cloth, woven in England by the House of Dormeuil.

Thomas Mason Founded in 1796

Thomas Mason Goldline

Thomas Mason founded his textile mill in 1796 at the height of the English Industrial Revolution. His company specialized in producing cotton shirting fabrics woven exclusively with long staple two-fold cotton. In a short time Thomas Mason became the point of reference for elegance.

Thomas Mason fabrics have maintained the characteristic techniques and styling which made this trademark famous. The fineness of the yarn, the continuing design research, the special finishing treatments, and the highest attention throughout production, guarantee the excellence of this top quality fabric.

Today, one of the more notable products of Thomas Mason is the Giza 87 Collection. This precious cotton is cultivated in cotton fields in the Nile delta in Egypt. This area’s particular climate and fertile region has produced this fine cotton they use to produce fine shirtings. With this cotton Thomas Mason is able to produce fabrics which does not degrade over time as other fabrics do. Also, the freshness of the material and its original brightness is absolutely maintained contrary to numerous washing.

At Hamilton Douglass we carry a vast array of fabrics from this Thomas Mason collection. They are ready for you enjoy year after year and season after season. Make your appointment today to see what we can design for you.

 

 

Where Should The Break On My Trousers Fall?

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Custom, Menswear

Confused About The Break?

Where your pants hit your shoes can be confusing.  And slim fit pants can add an extra amount of uncertainty. So, let’s clear up the confusion so you can look properly stylish!

Slim Fit or Narrow Leg

With Slim fit or narrow pants you will want the bottom of the trouser to just brush the top of your shoe. This will give the pants the slight break it needs so just a small about of sock will show when you walk. Any more of a break with this type of trouser will make them look baggy or sloppy.

With slim fit jeans you could hem the pants higher so they hem hits the shoe slightly higher, showing more of your sock or ankles. The current fad is to have them even higher, but as with most fads they fade. We encourage our clients to stay with a classic, stylish look to always remain in fashion.

Quarter or Medium Break

Dress pants that have a straight leg or even a slight taper, the bottoms should touch the midpoint of the laces. This gives the pant a slight break and a beautiful flow to the leg when you walk. The socks should not be showing, but cover the entire ankle as you walk. This gives a very business and stylish look to you and your suit. Anything more will start to look a little heavy.

Full Break

Full Breaks are more for pants that are more full and not tapered. The cuffed pants pictured above are perfect for a full break look providing they are wide enough at the bottom. If you have a more tapered pant with cuffs, use a medium or slight break.

If you are still in doubt about the break of your trousers or jeans, stop in and see us or your local expert tailor. We can always help you look the most professional and yet stylish.

Any questions or comments please leave them below. We’d love to know what you are wearing and how you wear breaks.

Tips For The Hard To Fit Gentleman

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

Hard To Fit? Custom Is For You!

Part of the appeal of custom clothing is being able to fit a hard-to-fit physique. Whether you’re short or tall, stocky or slim, customized options can create your best possible look.

For Shorter Men

Keep the break in your trousers minimal to lengthen the front crease line. Place your suit coat buttons a little lower (two-button coats will be more flattering than three-button coats) and consider using peak lapels-the longer lines add the illusion of height. Enjoy the bolder fabrics that your taller colleagues can’t always pull off, such as glen plaid and Prince of Wales.

For Taller Men

To keep things in proportion, choose wider ties and a spread-collar shirt. Accessories such as a belt, a tie bar, or a pocket square can help break up the impression of height. Rounder toes on your shoes are helpful, along with ties with horizontal or diagonal stripes.

For Stocky Men

Unless you’re sitting down, keep your suit coat buttoned to avoid drawing attention to your center. Shirts are best kept simple and elegant, as busier prints will emphasize girth. Boxier toes on substantial shoes can keep your feet from seeming too small for your frame. Choose notched lapels instead of peak to avoid adding extra thickness to your chest.

For Slim Men

You can create the impression of greater substance without wearing oversized clothes. Instead, choose lighter colors for your suit, such as gray or blue. A thicker-gauge fabric can also add bulk, both in your suits and in your shirts. Choose plaids or checks over pinstripes, and allow your ties to add a splash of color. Thicker ties may overwhelm your frame, so choose one that looks well-proportioned.

The key to looking fantastic is, as always, a perfect custom fit, no matter your build.
WHAT DOES YOUR WARDROBE REVEAL ABOUT YOU?

Mark Twain’s famous quote says that “the clothing makes the man,” but we believe it’s more accurate to say that the clothing reveals the man. A man’s wardrobe choices showcase his thinking, his beliefs, and his core values.

Custom clothing allows you to make sure your clothing reveals the best side of you. A well-tailored wardrobe demonstrates to the world that you’re confident, willing to invest in yourself, and successful.

When you’re ready to update your wardrobe, give us a call. We can help make sure that your clothing showcases your best qualities-both internal and external.
